Awesome Quantum Computing – Massive Collection of Resources

Quantum computing utilizes quantum mechanical phenomenon such as entanglement and superposition to manipulate qubits to perform computation on a quantum computer. Currently available are tools to create and run programs on publicly usable quantum computers as well as resources to learn about them.

This is a curated list of up-to-date resources on learning about and developing on quantum computers. The goal is to build a categorized community-driven collection of up to date, high quality resources.
